Math 5 Holmes Notice To Parents And Students!!

Posted: January 18, 2010

Students have started the next chapter in Math "Estimating Quotients".  It is important that students practice and model to their parents the specific Math strategies that have been explored to date.  Modelling to parents will build confidence in their ability to use the strategy not only in Math class but in the real world.   Strategies include: 1.  Double and Take Half. 2.  Rounding to make compatible numbers. 3.  Eleven Strategy. 4.  Compensation when estimating. 5.  Expanded form to create multiplication facts.(Two digit by two digit multiplication)   Please take the time to ask your child about the strategies described above.   Mr. Henderson
